"I would normally start at 10am and help the staff to make all necessary procedures for setting up. My role was to make sure that all ATM machines’ details were recorded. Majority of my day was dedicated to working with customers (e.g. opening accounts) and sometimes I was given the responsibility to track the record of all credit/debit cards arriving to the branch. Apart from that, I was allowed to record all cheques that customers would bring to the branch daily and send these cheques to the HQ of Santander. I was supposed to finish at 5pm but due to my high interest in the internship I was allowed to work up till 6pm and help the staff making sure that all records are neat and up-to-date."

"I'd usually get into work and check all my emails as this would outline any important tasks I'd need to do straight away. I'd the normally spend a good proportion of my day assisting with enquiries the stats team receive on a daily basis. These enquiries can range from press and other departments internally to the public externally. Other tasks I completed on my placement were spending a few days with the Information and Risk branch of the stats team where I worked on a web update project, in which I was populating prepared web copy templates. I also looked at the incidence and mortality projections based on the 2014 data using this to pull out data for each of the main cancers for the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland."
